Progressive DNC

Progressive DNC is the newest release of DNC software by Berkshire Technology Solutions(BTS). BTS has partnered with Thingworx to revolutionize DNC communications by utilizing traditional DNC functions on the Thingworx platform. Progressive DNC is a completely customizable Software-as-a-Service(SAAS) solution that allows SMB and Enterprise manufacturing corporations to communicate with CNC machines using the latest technology. By utilizing a web-based platform for communications, Progressive DNC can seamlessly integrate with CNC machines as well as Comtrol and Moxa Serial-to-Ethernet hardware all within one easy to use interface. For CNC machines that require RS232 serial communication, Progressive DNC interfaces directly with Serial-to-Ethernet hardware, in turn, eliminating the need for additional software to create and utilize anachronous COM ports.
